Jo Ellen Davis, age 62, of Wyoming passed away unexpectedly January 3, 2018. She battled undiagnosed illnesses for many years, and is now at peace with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jo Ellen was born on August 9, 1955 in Des Moines, Iowa and was raised in Forest Lake. She lived her life guided by her faith, and was known for her upbeat demeanor and optimistic attitude. She rarely complained, so the extent of her medical issues were only known by those closest to her. Jo Ellen was a devoted mother to her three children, and cared for her own mother who battled Alzheimer’s for over 15 years. She worked industriously in her church and was always thinking of creative ways to reach those in need, and help others with her musical and artistic talents.
Jo Ellen is preceded in death by her father Harley Baker Davis, and her mother Donna Lee Davis. She is survived by her sister Kay Moorhouse, brother, Alan Davis; her children Kimberly (Michael) Cressman, Matthew (Kylie) Osterbauer, Jennifer (Jeremy) Sutton; grandchildren Kaylie, Samuel, Alyssa, Cora, Vera, Dakota, Chloe, an expected baby boy; and devoted friend Jodeen Johnson.
Memorial services will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at Maranatha Church in Forest Lake. Visitation will take place one hour prior to the service at church on Saturday. Family interment will take place at a later date.
Arrangements are under the direction of Grandstrand Funeral Home in Lindstrom. Condolences maybe expressed online at www.grandstrandfh.com
